Love Song from a Montana Boy to a Wyoming Girl He Saw Once Forever
I’m not exactly sure what album this song will be on eventually, but I wanted to share this before the album gets established. I’m so excited about the direction the younger artists are taking music right now. I wanted to borrow some of their production tricks and apply them to this song. I’m really happy with the progress on this one.
Thione Diop takes an amazing tama (talking drum) solo in the middle of this one. Max Levin came by the studio to offer some suggestions on arrangement and production.
Hold my sight
Open wide mountainside
My song flies alone to you across the night
Hold my hand
Touch a sun turned red
Dream sweet dreams of dancing, purple bays
Smooth my hair
Still someday I’ll be a man
and hide my heart from the world
But today I’ll be strong, strong, strong.
